For most, the Night is over, but for a few, the action is just getting started. DAWN has yet to break, but that does little to stop THE LIZARD from prowling.
The Lizard... AND SPIDER-MAN!!
"Ssssspider-maaaaan!" the creature formerly known as Mint Elv shouts. "I knew you would come for meee..."
"Wow! A talking lizard! So you really are as smart as they say. Let's see if you're as strong, too! I'm bringing you in, one way or the other. HEY! Keep those teeth where I can see them!" Spidey leaps out of the way of the Lizard's bite, but in the process catches his claws. Indeed, the Lizard is strong, and also fast.
And he can also scale walls just as easily as Spider-Man can! "Nowhere to run from meeeee," the Lizard shouts as he chases Spidey up a building.
This is going to be a tougher fight than Spidey thought. Maybe he should have spoken to Martha Connors first, like the Daily Bugle letter had asked. Whoops.
SPIDER-MAN IS IN A FIGHT WITH MINT ELV, a.k.a. THE LIZARD
Spidey's fight post limit is 13.
Mint Elv's is 18.
Mint Elv has a 5-post advantage. Uh-oh.
A random time limit has been set, which will begin the minute both fighters have indicated their readiness.
CHEERING is DISABLED for this Fight.
For the rest of you, it is still DAWN, but the two Fighters may post in the game thread anyway until their Fight concludes.
Spiderman realizes where they are. It's right near the Lizards Lab!
Spiderman checks for civilians before he dives through the window. He doesn't want to bring the danger any closer!
he quickly scours around looking for something, ANYTHING he can use.
As the lizard smashes into the building behind him, spiderman finds a notebook labelled "Lizard DNA and the effects on the human body" and a small vial beside it of a strange liquid in a syringe. Written in tiny letters it says "Antidote".
Spiderman quickly backflips out of the way of the lizards claws.
Curt, this isn't tested yet is it? Will this help you??? Stop before you hurt someone! Let me help you!
The lizard snapped his head around as he heard the crash of glass behind him. “Get out of my swamp!” He roared. After all his lab was located in his swamp and all he wanted was to be left alone. Roaring out he called for his pet crocodiles to assist him in crushing the annoying spider in his lab as he whipped his 6.5 foot tail at the masked pest, the appendage crushing anything that got in its way, even concrete. Using his superhuman reflexes and speed, The Lizard followed up with his sharp claws, swiping at the annoyance, his crocodiles chomping alongside him.
As spidey dodged his claws and crocodiles via the only way he could, The Lizard once again shot his tail out, the 70 mph appendage turning his enemy into a red and blue blur that sent him flying through the window and into a few trees. He followed after him, zooming through the swamp like he was running on a track. Catching up to spider man, he once again struck out with his lethal claws, aiming right for the chest.
As Spidey flies through the air, he lands and rolls protecting the little syringe.
He quickly read the notes on it before he was launched and the science checked out. The worst that would happen would be nothing, best case, he turns back human.
Spidey webs launches himself back at the lizard.
Hey Scaley, over here!
Spidey lands back in the building in front of him. He goes to THWIP his face, but instead gets the ceiling above him. He pulls hard and the cowling drops pinning him down. Spidey jumps over and quickly administers the antidote and steps back, hoping for the best.
Curt, are you in there?
Spidey sees that the antidote takes affect, and begins to force a shift back to human. The lizard is fighting the change and launches at Spidey who does a back flip out of the way.
Spidey snacks his butt and says "Come on, let's wear you out lizard breath! Follow me".
enticed the lizard chases after Spidey as he jumps out the window and thwips away, leading him further from the city.
The Lizard may have a lizard brain, but at least he could tell that the spider was heading towards the city Instead of sitting in the swamp that the Lizard had scared everyone from. Not interested in taking the fight to the city, despite the fact it would be to his advantage, he used his tail to knock a tree down, grabbed it, and threw it to land in front of Spider-Man to try to keep him in the swamp. He called on some snakes to wrap themselves around Spider-Man and to bite him with their poisonous fangs. The exact kind of poison that Spider-Man had grabbed the antidote from the lab and stuck into The Lizard. Not a very bright spider to assume that the antidote would turn the Lizard back into Curt Connors. After all he had worked on the cure before his full transformation, but never finished it.
Plus being a Lizard was amazing. He could cut off limbs and regrow them. All physical capabilities were superhuman. Plus reptiles were at his beck and call. So why would he make a cure?
The swamp didn’t have much for the masked pest to use to stay out of The Lizard’s reach. In fact he had nothing. With his strength any tree was easy to knock down. There were not many buildings in the swamp either. Just the lab which would force Spider-Man into a close quarters battle, which would be a foolish move on his part as The Lizard had great reach due to his size, and his strength would easily break through any of spider-mans webs. Not to mention any direct hits on The Lizard would hurt spidey more than it would the Lizard. In fact the reptile man wouldn’t even feel the hits.
However in the swamp was a large stone tower. While The Lizard could break through stone and concrete, it would take more than one hit to take down the tower. Thus unlike the trees, the tower was the only high place that The Lizard’s precious reptiles could not reach the arachnid man.
The Lizard chased Spider-Man through the swamp. Any hit that came his way was harmless against his tough skin, and object thrown was easily crushed with slice of the claws, or whip of the tail. Pushing him into water was pointless as he would swim just like an alligator or crocodile could. Eventually the only place to run from the assault of the Lizard and his pets was the stone tower. Or so one would think.
Like a gecko the Lizard scaled the tower even faster than Spider-Man, ordering his pets to wait at the bottom, while he beat the ”hero“ to the top. “Now I have you“ he said as the masked man was stuck between The Lizard and his hungry pets below. “Once you are gone there will be no one standing in the way of the creation of my super lizard army!” He laughed.
I guess it's time to stop holding back!
Spiderman let loose a proper full strength punch to the lizards ribs, sending him flying away.
He quickly Webbed to his body before he hit the ground, using the momentum to shoot back towards him, slammed his feet into the same spot. He then webbed him again, and wrenched his arms with all his strength sending the lizard in a circle and slamming him headfirst into a hard spot on the ground.
Peter quickly realized that Conners must be of two minds right now, and maybe his memories are foggy.
The antitode must've been too weak to work on him, or some other condition.
Spiderman pushes a button on his webshooters. A small army of nano spiders detach from under his suit. Some stand guard against potential threats, the others begin to read the lizards life signs. He has avoided a killshot, but now he saw what the problem was. The lizards heart was pumping too fast and his body was running too hot.
Spiderman ready his bots and delivers a shock to lizard, slow and steady controlling his heartbeat to slow down. Slower. Slower.
To a human level.
